Although Sascha Lenz had a great start to the new season at Red Bull Ring scoring two fourth places in the first two races in 2016, some hard times followed as he had to overcome some difficulties in the middle of the season.
The 29 year old son of 3 times FIA European Cup champion Heinz-Werner Lenz and S.L. Truck Racing Team Manager Silvia Lenz, got back on track in the races at Hungaroring where he scored two fifth places.
Only one week later at Autodrom Most, Sascha took his first visit to the podium when he saw the chequered flag third at the wheel of his bright orange #30 MAN race truck.
At the next round in Belgium, the owner of a towing company even crossed the finish line second place. These two podium positions and his numerous top seven rankings made him win overall seventh place in the championship and scooping the Young Driver of the Year Award for 2016.
For 2017 Sascha returns intent on building upon this momentum and with small but highly organised SL TruckSport team he believes that more visits to the podium will be achievable this term.
